Cousin Eddy's children!
We all fit nicely into Clark's family room!
Kaden was the first to open his gift, his words exactly, "I always wanted this!" Daddy said, what is it?, Kaden replied, "I don't know!"
Clark didn't sit much this night however, his family sure was gracious in hosting this Griswold Christmas Party!
The dessert left us all speechless, except Leah. She never is speechless!
Austin seems to believe that he is the man of the house trying very hard to convince the cousins of the same.
The college cousin got a well needed package full of highly nutritious meals to keep his figure and bank account in check.
This hat has been a big hit amongst the follow Griswold's
The position for most during the evening.
This is the Hallows' aka Griswold Family, minus Dad and Mom Hallows' who are serving an LDS Mission in Independence, Missouri. We sure do miss them!
Our cousin Rusty, aka Zach really is very well suited for this hat!
It sure was a terrific evening, everyone got such great fun gifts, hopefully everyone was very happy. The food was super good as usual. Steve made fun of Leah's Raspberry Pretzel Salad but everyone else loved it. Mom would be so proud of my jello salad experience while she is away. There might be some competition when she returns. Barry and Lanett aka Clark and Ellen really did a wonderful job at hosting this event in their home. We played a game of Cranium with each family being a team, all the kids even participated, it was fun but the President of the family Marcia, thought we should open gifts as the kids were anxious, that is by far their favorite part. Cassidy got a digital camera from Santa and she learned lots of new tricks yesterday on how to use it, she will soon be showcasing a video presentation to all at the next family gathering. I think this Christmas was wonderful and I hope that 2010 brings us all much happiness and blessings beyond our desires.
